The original section of the Hermitage House was built in the mid-18th century and visited by George Washington and his staff during the Revolutionary War. In 1845, the house was transformed by architect William Ranlett into one of the finest examples of Gothic Revival architecture in North America.
Visitors to The Hermitage now have access to three interactive tablets installed in the new permanent orientation gallery, just off the gift shop. Before taking a docent-led tour, visitors can use the tablets to learn about the history of The Hermitage, Theodosia Prevost and George Washington, the entrepreneurial Rosencrantz family, the cotton mill, recreation in the 1890s and the early 20th century tea room. The Hermitage is leased by the Friends of the Hermitage, Inc. who conducts all tours, programming and events at the site.
